, and competition in terms of competition which is as good as happened in america in the late 19th century. you know, one of the interesting things i have to add to that is, and i don't know what the consequences will be in the longer run, but it has to be noted that the chinese state is much more present in the chinese economy that is true in any of the asia tigers. so for example, even, the big companies are still predominantly state-owned the privatizations that was introduced at the end of, in the late 1990s didn't go nearly as far as it went in russia. thankfully i think for them. and many other private firms -- well, yeah? >> over and over, yes. i wish i didn't. >> but, you know, the main shareholder is the chinese economy. so it's a very chinese state solution to the question. and i'm not -- at the end of the day you have to say, over the last 30 years china has grown at over 10% a year, and has clearly and all sorts of way been remarkable transformation. it has been responsible on its own for over half the reduction in poverty in the world. now, this is an extraordinary achievement. and the
